Teacher's Guide - Indus Valley - Storage Vessel Details

This reusable guide covers 2500 BC- 1500 BC and the Indus Valley civilization. It is to be used in conjunction with the Indus Vally storage vessel (EDU 021). The Indus Valley is located in modern-day Pakistan. Indus Valley civilizations developed out of earlier farming communities, becoming one of the first great urban civilizations. The most common art is wheel-turned pottery, copper-based metallurgy, and complex weaving of fabrics. The pottery of the Indus Valley was plain, and mass-produced for utilitarian, decorative, and funerary purposes. The surface of the pottery was almost always dull, with the lines of the design painted parallel to the surface of the piece. The designs of the Indus Valley are characterized by a bold freedom of patterning, consisting of either geometric or naturalistic patterns. The geometric patterns include checkers, triangles, lines, fish scales, circles, and spirals. Naturalistic patterns include leaves, flowers, animals, birds, and fish. Indus Valley ceramics are usually red, orange, or yellow, with designs painted in black.
